    The Ken Bone

    Almost immediately after the second POTUS debate, Ken Bone made the rounds as the webs newest meme. TV shows picked up the stories, news agencies featured him in segments, the world was lit for 'the nicest guy at any debate ever,' Ken Bone.

    First Order Stormtrooper

    Since it's pretty inevitable that you're going to see a lot of Star Wars out there, no character will be as instantly recognizable as the First Order Stormtrooper.

    Yes, we can get a little nerdy and declare the obvious differences this outfit has with previous generations... but muggles won't realize it if you're rocking an older version. This one also available on Amazon.

Just don't go grabbing anybody by the genitalia. It's not nice, nor is it sanitary. Masks, wigs, suits, and the famous red hats are available on Amazon.
